PHILAEDELPHIA - (P) - Ad-
lai E. Stevenson flew into towr
yesterday for a rally of Easterr
states Democrats that will stress
pocketbook problems and forecast
the 1954 outlook for the party as
"fair and warmer."
The man who won the Demo-
cratic presidential nomination last
year but lost out in the election,
sized up the major issues for the
1954 Congressional elections as
foreign trade, foreign policy, tax-
ation and farm policy.
DEMOCRATIC National Chair-
man Stephen A. Mitchell told re-
porters the emphasis here will be
on high living. costh. They have
climbed in recent months to suc-
cessive all-time peaks.
The big 11-state rally gets for-
mally under way today. The cli-
max is a banquet and a Steven-
son speech at 11 p.m. today over
nationwide radio and television
Stevenson didn't reply directly
when a cluster of reporters at the
Philadelphia airport asked him
whether he might "find a few
shortcomings in the Eisenhower
Administration" in his address.
"At least I didn't bring any mud
with me," he remarked. "As a
fellow said out in my state, 'He

must know more about it than I

Asked about Eisenhower's pro-
posal before the United Nations
this week for international pool-
ing of atomic materials, Stevenson
said he wasn't surprised that the
Russian reaction was disdain and
He said he still was hopeful

Outstanding Residence Halls Debts
(Editor's Note: This is the Arst in a series of interpretive articles on the
University Residence Halls, their finances, foods and future.)

Are today's dormitory residents over-paying for board and room

What will the University's residence halls system be like in
the next few years? Will there be more "South Quads?" What are

Set To Drop
Since June, 1952
call for February will drop to
18,000, the lowest monthly figure
since June 1952, Secretary of De-
fense Wilson said yesterday.
Draft calls have been running
at a monthly rate of 23,000 since
July. Last February selective ser-
vice inducted 53,000 young men
into the Army.
WILSON disclosed the February
1954 figure at an airport news con-
ference just before leaving for
Paris, where he will attend next
week's session of the North At-
lantic Treaty Council.
He told reporters he didn't
think there would be any more
reductions in draft calls, and he
said he did not see how the draft
or some equivalent method of re-
cruiting soldiers, could be drop-
ped as long as the present tense
international situation exists, or
in the "foreseeable future."
Defense experts predict that
draft calls will soar to 50,000 or
60,000 a month after next July.

The City Council is opposed to
lifting the University driving ban,
Council Chairman George W. Sal-
lade told a television audience last
night in a press interview.
"Dropping the ban would bring
an increase in cars, in the traffic
problem and the safety problems,"
Sallade said. "We're not gray-
bearded old men, but we feel that
lifting the ban would multiply our
problems many fold."

Mayor Brown commented en-
thusiastically on the new May-

AN ADVISORY proposition to
be placed onthe ballot in the next
election concerning the building
of a new city hall was also dis-
cussed by the Mayor.
Voters will be asked to help
answer two current questions, al-
though the City Council will not
definitely have to abide by the
vote. The two questions are
whether or not to build a new
city hall and' whether to us an
E. Ann Street location for it.
"I'm a great believer in letting
the public decide," said Mayor
Brown. "I feel that this location
is the best one, since it is now a
dangerous location for homes. I
also believe that it will entail no
increase in taxes."

TV from their studio in the base-

job of its history-the "Opera-

Federal grants paid 45 per
cent of the cost of building all
the dormitories constructed be-
tween 1938 and 1940-Stock-
well, Victor Vaughan, West Quad
and East Quad.
But most of the funds which
built today's residence halls came
from tax-exempt revenue bonds on
previously-built dormitories. The
University hasn't gotten a cent
from the State for building or op-
erating the residence halls.

A TOTAL of nearly 13.5 million
dollars of these University revenue
bonds are still outstanding today.
So each of the 5315 men and
women living in the residence
halls today must pay roughly
$140 a year-about one-fifth of
an individual's total dormitory
bill-toward paying off the res-
idence halls debt.
The history of the debt is a
